Solving Critical Clinical Issues

 

Supported by a group of clinical leaders with a combined 75+ years specializing in Infection Prevention and Control, the AMS clinical practice provides more comprehensive support than just a lab or clinical consultant. We are the backbone of your facility's infection prevention and control program -- armed with dedicated care teams (experienced infection preventionists, doctors, RNs, and LPNs), full panel quarterly and/or symptomatic PCR testing, and detailed live analytics of resident EMRs.
